Songs on Repeat

Do you listen to the same song over and over? Or does that drive you nutty?

I'm in the former camp. And it gets especially bad when I'm writing and a certain song evokes a certain feeling that I'm trying to capture. Sometimes I'll make a playlist of only that song, start writing, and then, a half hour later, I look up and that song has played 9 times. Gurgle.

"Light & Day/Reach for the Sun" by the Polyphonic Spree was much on repeat this past weekend. It's a good one that people who make movie trailers regularly use to invoke joy.

Also, don't you absolutely love songs where both women and men sing?

So, what's your repeater?

I totally do this! Probably the artist(s) most on repeat is Jackson 5, lol. If i'm in a bad mood, Little Michael makes it better. And if I'm in a good mood, Little Michael helps me celebrate:)

♥ Jackson 5 ♥. "I Want You Back" is on the "Wilfair" playlist!

I do this constantly. I really appreciate headphones and driving by myself because they help hide fixations on songs. Recently I've been playing Old Crow Medicine Show's New Virginia Creeper. The peppy banjo and harmonica put me in a good mood.

Jackson 5 songs are the best to dance to!

How many people are in Polyphonic Spree? It's an army up there?

Ohhh, Old Crow Medicine Show! I've just started getting into them over the last few months.

Yes, headphones! They work. So does driving. I love driving. If I'm in the car and music is on ideas come more easily. You too?

I think there are 25 people in Polyphonic Spree. They seem like a blissed-out, dance-happy high school choir.

Yes! Driving is great head-space time This is a new thing for me because (fun fact about Bess #1) I've only been driving for about a year even though I'm about twice the legal driving age.

If you have the chance to go to an Old Crow show, you should, they're great live.
